Isn't it a use case to have a single XP listener at a single well defined
URL handle more than one service request? I feel the request URI should be
irrelevent to processing the message. Under your definition, would the same
service on different hosts be defined as being different? What if I sell
software for a service I defined to different web sites to use. By your
definition, they would all be different services, not the same service from
different providers.
